Re: 9913F??



You really should think about using 'Aircom Plus', as already
mentioned here in the list.
I have no problems at all with this cable, using it since several
years.
But you should also use the correct type of N connectors, even if
they are about 50% more expensive than 'normal' N-connectors. This
connectors have a perfect mechanical fitting to the cable, and they
are waterproof.
Unfortunately, I don't know where to get 'Aircom Plus' and the
connectors stateside
